I need something besides claritin it is not helping. Benadryl knocks me out. I feel like I am getting a sinus infection.

not in the frist trimester, if in not mistaken, it contains dextroethorphan, which can cause some very bad birth defects or miscarriage.

According to my doctors paperwork you can't take mucinex until after you are at least 14 weeks and even still my paperwork says to consult your OB/GYN first. Most of the medications you can't take until after the fourteenth week. I would consult your OB first.

Regular Mucinex should be fine but Mucinex DM is not! Here is a link just for reference: http://wiki.answers.com/Q/Is_Mucinex_DM_safe_to_take_while_pregnant



However, you should still call your doctor and double check. Good luck and I hope you feel better!
